Don’t Lose Your Head

Karolina Specht
Nie trać głowy
Poland 2015 / 4’

A white head slowly rolls onto a black screen and a single event begins a domino effect. The film’s visual aspect develops along with the plot, moving from simple compositions, to additional splits of the screen and increased number of forms, all the way to shots reminiscent of a colorful kaleidoscope. An excess of thoughts, relations and ties may ultimately have a tragic effect. A short graphic story about how easy it is to lose one’s head.
